brooks was a deputy secretary of state under president george w. bush. nick burns, form he undersecretary for political affairs on the democratic side. and republican. good to see both of you. let me ask you your reaction first to this. to suzanne's reporting what the cia says happened. >> as a cia alumni, i'm not surprise told at the bravery of these officers. these people have been at war for many years now and their bravery is no surprise whatsoever. i'm sure they did what they felt they needed to do to protect their colleagues as well as other americans. i think we're deeply indebted to them. >> nick, ely lake from the daily beast, i know you're familiar with his reporting. he's done some fantastic reporting. he's saying the state department never requested military back-up the night of the benghazi attack. normally that would have been the responsibility of the ambassador who of course was in the heat of the moment there. so that then would have fallen to the state department to make that decision, and as we know, they could hear it in real-time. does this surprise you? >> you know,
going after george w. bush about his military service. >> yeah. look i mean, what has two thumbs and thinks the mainstream media is liberal? this guy. it is an old argument and tired argument but not an untrue argument. it seems to me a lot of the mainstream media basically, they are working from the same cues that the same assumptions that the essentially the democratic party is working from. so in the weeks that the benghazi story has been unfolding and the president has been saying these really outrage justly untrue things about what you ordered, when he ordered it and got all the information outgoing back to susan rise how the cia operatives, basically our ambassador's bodyguards is flatly untrue and no one revisited that. the media is obsessing the war on women and binders and all of this, sort of nonsense about big bird and i think things are. doesn't mean they're insincere but where they get excited lines up with democrats. jon: it's a training world. jonah goldberg, thank you. >> great to be here, thanks. jenna: we're awaiting some live remarks from governor romney. his c
to george w. bush, christie and joe, a race is separated one-tenth of 1%. >> is a dead heat national the list fascinating is we talk about the ground game since april and it may decide this more importantly one candidate the but the win all of them or none of them are split equally and be up for several days to figure out. lou: to whom is you give momentum? or are they add tae? >> good evening. if i give an indicator to momentum as governor romney. listen to the stump speech not only today but he is very optimistic and upbeat have the will turn things around obama has been strident and very dismiss if talking about what romney is all about. would get the key undecided voters they will swing in the governor's direction. will know what bob has done the he ds not talk about his vision. lou: joe, the question is not responding to questions about benghazi clearly stonewalling the issue thanks to of compliant, docile, lapdog national media. to americans living care that the president refuses to explain it to is responsible? >> mitt romney missed the big opportunity to push that issue at th
more work for us, and that means less profit for our employers. john: president george w. bush criticized for trying to sell propaganda after two months from invasing iraq, flew to the pacific and then was had the big mission accomplished banner behind him, he declared -- >> in the battle of iraq, the united states and our allies have prevailed. [cheers and applause] jowrn: so when he said that, everybody was thrilled. why is that a gaffe? >> i think the left tried to spin that it was a gaffe, but because it was so unsettling on the ground, in iraq, it didn't really mirror what a lot of the news reports were; however, again, if you're going to spin that, he was correct. they did accomplish the mission which they outlined originally at the time. john: and then reality i the next few months, and that statement lked done. >> nay got into the nation building. the goal was to topple hussein. they accomplished that. if i spin this, i say it was a nice pat on the back to the men and women in uniform who accomplished that goal. what's wrong with that? my favorite part was the oh, how d
of propriety such as any exists stilin a presidential campaign >> think of george w. bush, and campaigning for mitt romney. it would be all over the place. what is this former president doing campaigning? lou: think about what difference in history is if eisenhower is campaigning for nixon in 1960. >> exactly, and we have seen that our former presidents, maybe with the exception of jimmy carter, who every once in awhile stick a needle into somebody's back, but basically even carter hasn't gone and the campaign trail in favor of aristocratic and it. lou: a lot of journalists trying to catch up with anne klein reporting on the machinations of clinton, the secretary and her legal team trying to match your reporting. her role, the president's -- the former president's role in taking responsibility for benghazi, then stepping back from it, leaving her in a heightened, elevated, if you will, memory, at least, those who follow politics, but taking effectively no responsibility. the president's stepping forward. what is going on here? >> and the president was asked today, i believe, about this ben
chief of staff to president george w. bush, kal rove. fox is a contributor. good to have you with us. you have said from the outset that this would be a tight race. did you really expected to be this tech??3 >> the -- tht is hard to say, but it will be tight. this will not be settled until the wee hours of wednesday morning. maybe sometime wednesday they will finish counting the ballots, but it will be very tight. lou: and in your most recent op-ed in the "wall street journal" you said it is all about the numbers. amongst the numbers you put a run the victory by two or three percentage points. are you updating that here tonight? are you still convinced of that margin? >> i still think i wll e close to that margin. i do think there was an impact on this race to my subtle impact. let's go beyond the polls. let's start looking at the actual turnout. the key for me is ohio. it. lou: all right. i love it. >> there we go. 547,000 democrats have voted early or cast an absentee ballot early or have requested an absentee ballots compared to 470,000 republicans. democrats traditionally out in
. case in point, the presidency of george w. bush, 2004, before the debates, seen as a problem for the president to deal with the storm in florida, and that he was not prepared for the first debate with senator kerry; however, image-wise, he was getting his hands dirty, a good pr move for the white house at the time. a year in change, hurricane that treen that, not good for president bush at the time. depends on what the reaction of the federal government is, how bad the storm is, and what on the ticks you get from the white house and president obama churns out in response of this. neil: who thought the october surprise would be a nor'easter or whatever. >> and named sandy. neil: right. rich edson, thank you very much. good having you on. >> thanks. neil: microsoft entering the tablet ring, and apple could get its bell rung because of the economy. the former microsoft big wig on how companies could be down for the count, after this. [ male announcer ] you are a business o. governor of getting it done. you know how to dance... with a deadline. and you...rent from national. becau
, fox news contributor, and former deputy assistant to president george w. bush. chris i have to admit, government is looking pretty good the last couple days here. i don't know. do you think it is having impact on voters out there? >> look, it is hard to argue that fema is not necessary. also hard to argue that fema performs much better under a democratic president than it did under republican president. melissa: you made a jump from that one. >> look, bottom line the republican platform this entire summer, government bad, government bad, government bad. melissa: right. >> if you look paul ryan budget, it desmates fema. we need fema to coordinate between the states. that's why we got rid of articles of confederation and replaced it with the constitution. so one central government could help states work out in situations like this and we're showing that it work. >> brad, i don't know maybe it is time to make the distinction government isn't necessarily bad, it is bad at a lot of different things. this is one of the thing it is good at, national security, national disaster. what do you
to president george w. bush. welcome back to the show. always great to have you here. >> glad to be with you. gerri: i want to play a little bit of the sounds of our viewers can get a sense of the town. >> short. >> the jobs, where are the 9 million more jobs the president obama promised his stimulus would have created by. [speaking in native tongue] there in china, mexico, canada, countries that have made the sales more attractive for entrepreneurs and business and investment. even as president obama's policies have made it less attractive for them here. thing. gerri: and we have one more jobs report to come. what do you expect? is it going to help romney or the president? >> i don't think its going to make much difference at all. if you look at the picture that the economy has ben traveling through for the past three years now, basically we're in a situaaion where we have continued slow growth. we have growth at about 2 percent per year since the turnaround in june of 2009. i normal recovery should have doubled that, and unless we get to double that kind of growth are not going to have sig
with the business of politics is impacted by weather and remember, katrina and what happened with george w. bush's reputation, it's impacted other politicians along the way. let's talk now about the actual event itself. george is a storm chaser. george, have you ever seen-- first of all, it's such a late season hurricane and it's meeting with the arctic air from canada and the low pressure system coming from the west. what's going to -- what's going to happen. first of all, what's it like where you are and what's going to happen? >> well, right now, i'm similar to the weather system from canada, i'm on myself on my way from canada. it's calm right now. getting near the pa-new jersey border getting into position to go down near the water in jersey or long island and i've never seen anything quite like this. been through about 16 hurricanes, including katrina, rita and ike and although this isn't the most powerful storm i've been in, it's certainly the largest and i'm curious to see what's going to happen because it's not often you see this type of combination of weather systems, impacting a pop l
to george w bush. george bush was the incumbent president with you they say ohio under reports how the candidate is doing and there is plenty of room for mitt romney's ground game to put him over-the-top in ohio and get him to the 270 needed tuesday night. bill: back in the same part of virginia where they have been for the last couple of months. the president is giving his closing argument and using colin powell to do that. what is tkpwoef governor romney's closing argument? >> the intervention of hurricane sandy interrupted his driver reas much as he wanted to. it boils on you to bold, real change. mr. obama having been reelected wasn't able to keep many of the promises that he made. many of the policies that he put forth as a candidate didn't work as president. he has been emphasizing his bayh partisanship as governor of massachusetts trying to get swing voters in this race. we have ten battleground states that mitt romney plans to visit between now and tuesday night. he'll include in them pennsylvania and wisconsin, states that had been considered in the obama column that he no
a violater is china? we're mad at them for protectionist policies, but george w. bush put limits on products, but we allow the currency to get weak? >> yeah, well, china's run the largest program of manufacturing subsidies in the world, and they are not compliant with the world trade organization obligations. it's been encouraging property piracy matters. the international trade commission in 2009 said china's ip violations cost businesses $48 billion, and if china enforced intellectual property laws, american businesses would have employed 923,000 more americans in the united states. china has been the subject of the wto complaints, and it's lost all of them. clearly, we have a big issue with them. dennis: okay. someone to combat them, and i have not heard much from either side. thank you for being with us donald chang and donald gross. >> thank you. >> debate this, labors, unions, collective bargaining, brett mcmahon of miller and long destruction, and bill dyne author of "state of the unions" here at noon eastern. cheryl: live at reagan airport in washington, d.c. where they are trying to
advisor to george w. bush. nice to see you long time. doing well. you're going to help us look at the electoral college and we hear it's about ohio can't make it to the white house without winning ohio. >> there are other ways, but in order to get to ohio first, you have to get to three and then two. the three states that you have to get to before you get to ohio are florida, north carolina, and-- are indiana, north carolina and virginia, three historically republican states that president obama won and then you've got to win florida, which has 29 electoral college votes, you get those four states, indiana nobody considers to be a battle ground, if romney gets the three states, florida, north carolina, virginia, then he's set up for, you know, going to ohio, those three states look pretty good. north carolina out of contention, florida looks pretty good. you know, florida four years ago, they had the ballot requests four years ago in florida, the democrats had a 7 point advantage, 45% of the absentee ballot requests, 37 for republicans-- 46-37. this time the republicans have a
in the obama administration, but that's a program that was really begun under george w. bush who increased it tremendously then. there's kind after bipartisan consensus that is increasing a certain amount of dependency on government. >> steve: and it has to do with the economic circumstances we find ourselves in right now. look at skyrocketing people who are suddenly on disability simply because, many surmise, they've run out of government benefits and only way they can get money back in the kitty. >> well, republicans are worried probably more about the increase in welfare spending i don't know what is warranted by the economic down turn because clearly, with what happened to the economy in 2009, 2010, a lot more people than usual were going to need some economic assistance from the government. no doubt about that. but the problem is, is that the spending has increased beyond that at a higher, greater pace than what would have been warranted just by our hard times. >> clayton: byron york, always good to see you on the show. we thank you for getting up with us on a sunday. >> thank you, gu
, george w. bush got a lot of criticism katrina, doing a heck after job brownie, the idea it appeared everything was going along smoothly. we learned days after the fact that there were bodies being discovered and great discord, and bad communication, help wasn't getting readily available and power outages were much more than we were told. and this idea where they're slapping each other on the back and commending themselves for a great job it's going to come back and bite their hineys. >> i think you're right about being a sleeper issue and why the president has been at fema this morning when he's gotday. quickly yesterday on our program we took a look at monthly unemployment number and it actually notched up one tick to almost 8% it's at 7.9%, is it too late for this to impact the election? >> i think it was kind of stating the obvious, if the number been a lot worse than people were thinking or better than people were thinking maybe it would have moved the meter a little bit. i don't know if this one does, i think essentially what we're looking at is, you know, flat employment throu
